As a kid, one of my favorite things to do was to save my stocking for last. I’d sometimes wait until late in the evening on Christmas to open my stocking and savor the fun little extras that were always thoughtful and lovely. Stockings are always a fun way to do something different. One of my friends lets Santa bring the stockings so that she and her husband get the glory of the big presents!
Here are a few of my favorite ideas for stocking stuffers this year.
I love to add a few little bonus toys that keep my little one entertained. The simple dimpl is my favorite little fidget toy for every age. I have one on my purse, and my two-year-old loves her “pop”. It’s a great way to keep her quietly entertained for a little while. Safari LTD is a recently added line of high quality toys modeled after real and imaginary creatures. They’re incredibly detailed models that toddlers to teens will find interesting. My artistic husband can’t wait to gather a collection for our girl!
Need to fill a stocking with something sweet? Aside from our classic caramels, Abdallah chocolates are delicious, bite sized delights. Whimsical Chocolates are loved by one and all. Yum Earth candies offer a great natural alternative for kid’s candy.
In my stocking every year, I always ended up with an apple or an orange, and maybe a few practical things. I’m a huge fan of replay snack stacks, not just for kid’s snacks, but for fruits in my lunch box, for little things in my diaper bag, and for small items in my suitcase. Those things are so handy! If you’ve got a gal to buy for, try adding a stick or two of Amazelips balm in their stocking. They’re a must have for every purse!
Your little ones will have plenty of options for their stocking as well like Indestructible books. They’re a favorite with my baby. Bathtub Pals are a great quality bath time toy that’s easy to clean and safe if your little is still in the chewing phase!
I hope all the members of your family love their great stockings filled with all sorts of thoughtful gems!
